In my dream, it was daytime. The full moon had rainbow colors on it, not around it like a halo. I looked at it in wonder in my dream, calling others over to see. When I awoke, I wondered what it must mean. This is a typical occurrence since my Haudenosaunee great grandmother began coming to me in dreams a few years ago. I look to old teachings to try to find the answers. Sometimes they are there and sometimes they are not.
Many days, I feel my spirit being called back to my homelands, where I can learn from my elders what these things mean. Where I can be reminded that everything has a voice, a meaning, and a power…Orenda. My tongue yearns to speak the language taken away from my great-grandmother and my grandmother in the boarding schools created to strip them of their culture.
Whether trauma is ancestral or in our current lives, it can serve to create a disconnection from who you are. And yet, behind all of the things in life that can create disconnection, we have a stronger drive toward reconnection. This is our innate ability to heal. It is encoded within us. The reconnection could be as simple as a dream, a meditation, locking eyes or holding hands with your sisters and brothers. This is where healing begins.
I am on a quest to understand this daytime rainbow full moon. In the meantime, I will leave you with these words:
“The great spiritual Teachers who walked the Earth and taught the basics of the truths of the Whirling Rainbow Prophecy will return and walk amongst us once more, sharing their power and understanding with all. We will learn how to see and hear in a sacred manner. Men and women will be equals in the way Creator intended them to be; all children will be safe anywhere they want to go. Elders will be respected and valued for their contributions to life. Their wisdom will be sought out. The whole Human race will be called The People and there will be no more war, sickness or hunger forever.”
– Navajo-Hopi Prophecy of the Whirling Rainbow
Kunolùkwa, I love you. In the spirit of reconnection, may we share this good medicine with one another.
